Eating Raw Fish is Good for You

Fish has many health benefits which can boost brain power and ward off dementia as people age. People love sushi but the raw fish movement is still growing in popularity. Raw fish served fresh daily is the best way to enjoy poke, the way Hawaiians do in the islands. Sushi can be more expensive, making poke an affordable, simpler and even healthier option to enjoy as a natural progression of the sushi movement.


The omega-3s, a fatty acid found in oily fish, are a nutritional rockstar. Young people believe it improves reaction time and reduces mental fatigue following performance on difficult tasks. Older people enjoy it for the heart and brain benefits. Poke delivers omega-3 fatty acids that protect the heart and reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering blood pressure. Improved cardiovascular health is a great reason to incorporate fish into a regular dietary habit.


The overall health benefits of eating fresh, raw fish in a person’s diet go far beyond mental cognition. Consuming 4 ounces of poke consists of under 150 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 24 grams of protein. It’s naturally low in calories and, when served with fresh veggies, is a nutritious, delightful dish.


Poke Bros is one of the best place to get all the benefits of raw fish in one bowl. Two scoops of cubed fresh salmon or tuna come with every dish. It’s the obvious choice when selecting fast food served fresh.
